Termes Toro Tinto de Toro 2003

We recently pulled some cases out of storage, which haven't seen the light of day for nearly 15 years, so I'll have some fun posts in the next several months.

Nose has dried blackberry, dried raspberry, ripe blackberry, ripe black cherry, dry oak plank, violets, old roses, medium-roast coffee beans and old milk chocolate bar.

Palate has ripe black cherry, ripe red currant, dried apricot, dried raspberry, ripe blackberry, moist soil, juiced peach, still chewy tannins with coffee and semi-sweet chocolate on the medium-long finish.

Decanted 2+ hours, pop & short decant for sediment on future bottles.

This bottle is in a great spot this evening, still many enjoyable years ahead. Future bottles may be 2023+ in proper storage, and yeah we have more. 😁

Geez, how many wines get ‘lost’ in your cellar?@Severn Goodwin

@Peter Sultan Too many sometimes, these have been hanging out in CT storage for a long time. I have faith that many of the wines we bought in our 'youth' were good candidates for forgetting about for a while. Our buying strategy is different now, but I still enjoy these types of wine.

El Tresillo Amontillado Fino Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

17.5/20 (93/100) Плотный, сладкий, но при этом элегантный букет ароматов изюма, фиников, грецкого ореха и штолена. Сухое, тельное с довольно высокой, свежей кислотностью. Во вкусе ореховое печенье. Отлично! — 14 days ago

Teso La Monja Alabaster Toro Tinto de Toro 2009

Bummer..... whilst we were thinking to get a final glass it was only the weight of the bottle in our hands......
It was empty too fast..... very very good glass of wine. Fruit, mocca, chocolate, integrated wood, very well balanced. Best to decant with a very fine sieve as it has a lot of fine sediment.

Old & Plus Amontillado Jerez-Xérès-Sherry

17.5/20 (93/100) Приятный, комплексный букет: на первом плане орехи, за ними изюм, финики, имбирь, корица и песочное печенье. Тельное с умеренной кислотностью. Во вкусе появляется дополнительная нота булки бриошь. Сплошное удовольствие! — 11 days ago

Don Gonzalo Oloroso VOS Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

Spectacular. A thousand layers of caramel toffee, date, hazelnut, and acorn. Nutty and smells like sweets, but relatively dry and winey with salty accents. — 8 days ago

Manzanilla de Sanlúcar de Barrameda Manzanilla Fina

Nose of honey, walnuts, curry powder, smokey, toasty oak, lemon cough drops.

Quite complex on the palate: lime, salt, honey, almond, white flowers, and some salty mineral bitterness with very good acidity.

Delicious and complex. Also love that it's in a 375 mL screw top. I need to drink more sherry.

Rare Sherry Palo Cortado Solera PAP Palomino Fino

17.5/20 (93/100) В букете преобладают ароматы выдержанного педро хименеса: изюм, сушеный инжир и финики, мускатный орех и корица, песочное печенье. Сладкое (90 г/л), кислотность чуть выше среднего, хорошо сбалансирована сахаром и тельностью. Отлично! — 12 days ago
